      Dear Eileen & Family

      Received your letter certainly was glad to learn you were all right. Had worried awful about you. Did not know even if you had got back to ? Or not. So you see your letter took a load off my shoulders. So happy to know you and Baby are fine. Sure would love to see her. Bet she is cute. Picture was sweet. Dandy sure had got big. Audrey children are all fine and getting so big. Douglas is taller than Dan.

      Had quite a summer. Went up country early to get set for the season, which is expected a busy one. Well? The 28th of May they rushed me to the Hospital in Pitts? For a stone in the Gall bladder. Operated the 2 of June. And was there a month with day and night nurses

      [I don't know if the following is the same letter or not.]

      Aunt Mamie and her family are all fine. Also Audrey and her family. Children are getting very big. Well Darling enough for ?. This is the first day I have tome to write. But one everyone I know a letter. So am typing to get caught up. Mrs Crane has been lovely to me was up country twice to see me while I was sick. Now she is in Phil. Her daughter was rushed to the Hospital last week. So Jonnie is staying there to be near her. First me them Glad. Poor Johnnie is a nervous wreck. Sure hope we all came through alright. Give my love to Bill and the children. Don't overdo dear take it easy. Let me hear from you soon and tell me how you are.

      Love
      Aunt B and Uncle Arthur

      fragment

      one week to the day he died his mother Aunt Delia died of a broken heart. You know James was always her standby. Since his father and Rita died he was the head of the house. 4 deaths in one family in 2 years is awful. Dan has moved in the house and keepin a place for Mary and Arthur that is all that is left home now. They have a house keeper and our doing very good. Poor kids sure went through an awful lot in one week. James was sick a week with a cold. But guess he was pretty well run down. Aunt Delia had been sick and he had his hands full trying to take care of her. Got her well then he went so soon and then her. It sure knocked us all to pieces.

      [Carol Sullivan: This is all I have of this letter. It is from Aunt Bertha Shaw to my Aunt Eileen Sullivan Schrader, as are the other letters I send.]


      June 25, 195 [sic]

      Dear Aunt Bertha

      I received your letter this week, and I was very happy to hear from you. So glad that Uncle Arthur is well enough to go back to work.

      Well things are going along about the same down here. Beth is very much letter, and I am able to take a deep breath and relax a little.

      Of coarse we are not too happy about the planes that continue to fly low over the house. We are hoping that steps will be taken to move the Airport. You probably know about the terrible accident last week when the place crashed into those homes. That was only three miles from our house coming into the runway. We are about a mile from the part?. I've been holding my breath every time one fly's over the house.

      We are having some cold weather down here, I guess it is much colder up there.

      We are still looking for a place to live, so far unsuccessfully. We just missed a lovely place last week, seven rooms and sun porch. Well, we shall keep trying.

      I've got to get some new furniture too. Our stuff is ready to fall apart soon.

      Well honey, I guess that is about all. Diane is setting collecting stamps as I write this, ?God knows how you di it,? but she is doing is. She sends her love to you and Uncle Arthur ?As do I.?

      Write Soon
      With love to All
      Always
      Eileen

      PS Pretty ritzy stationary huh! ?Nothing but the best?


      Thus AM

      [Carol's writing: Aug 9. Judith, Michael children of Audrey, Vic?]

      Dear Eileen

      What in sun is the matter with you. Have not heard a word from you since before Christmas. Are you sick or what is the trouble. I know you don't have much time, if you are working. But does seem as if you could let me know how you are. And where Bill is! I just got back from being down South with Audrey. Vic was sent to Camp Lejeune from the coast. So Audrey did not stay at the coast as long as she would had liked too. Got work from her Douglas was in the Hospital very sick. So packed my bag was on my way. Found him a very sick boy. But when I left he had come home and was on the gain. We said he is growing to fast for his age. He is as tall as Dan only 9 years old. Brought Judith home with me. So would ...Doug. He is a lovely boy and of course Michael is just grand. Audrey has lost a lot of weight. But she did when she was there two years ago. Wish she would pack up and come home. I don't think the climate agrees with her or the children. She has a very nice cottage house all to herself lovely place. But I still wish she was ? me.

      How is Dandy & yourself. Take time out and write to me, also if I am not asking to give away your secrets, would you mind telling me bye any chance. Did you received the package I sent you Xmas! Of course my dear if it is a secret. Don't tell me. Are you getting called down? Yes.

      My love to you and your Daughter
      Just your Aunt
      Thanks All
      Says you.
    • From Carol Sullivan

      Louise told me that when Daniel was only 6 years old, his mother died. He and his two brothers, James and Michael were put into a home in Deep River, CT. Deep River is about 25 miles south of Hartford. It is close to Waterbury. Their sisters were sent to Springfield, Ma. to live with their Aunt Margaret.
